Who’s Getting What This Week?

Posted: May 25, 2010 in Dark Horse, DC Comics, Marvel

These posts are getting up later than usual and I really need to get heading on into work. Let’s just cut to the chase, shall we? Here’s what I’ll be buying this Wednesday:

Brave and the Bold #34
Doomwar #4 (Jonathan Maberry)
Fantastic Four #579 (Jonathan Hickman)
Green Lantern Corps #54
Guild #3
Power Girl #12
Secret Warriors #16 (Jonathan Hickman)
Thunderbolts #144 (Jeff Parker)
Wonder Woman #44

One thing I was going to talk about on this week’s videos (which we didn’t tape) was that I am going to continue to buy American Vampire despite the $3.99 cover price with no additional content come August. BUT because of that I will be dropping a book that I am currently getting to make up for that. So, starting this week (why postpone the inevitable?) I am dropping Green Lantern. I have been on the fence with this book for a long while and now that Blackest Night is finished, so am I with this book. I am at the point where I would rather use my money to support a comic and upcoming writer that is doing something different and who has a fresh voice. Green Lantern is/has neither of those things (to me anyway) anymore. Green Lantern Corps has always been the better GL book anyway.

    Hey what’s up guys? This week I’ll be getting:
    Green Lantern 54
    Unknown Soldier 20
    Wolverine Weapon X 13

    I wasn’t too suprised to hear you dropping Green Lantern I have been on the fence myself lately about it. After blackest night’s awesomeness I’m not happy that we jump right into another event I would like it if Green Lantern to find it’s own identity outside of event books. I will give it this month to see how it is if it’s not that good I’ll more than likely be dropping it like i did with Green Lantern Corps I had to drop it after the awesome concluision Tomasi made.

      i thought the art sucked in that finally, the inkers did no compliments to kyle rayner at all.

      • Stamps says:

        I agree completely
        Kyle Rayner’s face looks so bad every time he’s drawn in that book. Kyle is my favorite GL and I hate the way he looks. It seems to be that they draw Kyle like he has bad skin graphs like a burn victim or something.
        I personally like the story so I just try to not think about the art so much.

    20th century boys #8 is all I need. Nothing else compares really.

    • Hate to break the news to you Mike but we got an email today saying that there was a printing error in 20th Century Boys Vol 8 and that they have to go back and reprint the whole batch so it will be delayed at LEAST another month…maybe two. Sorry.

      J.

      p.s.

      I’m just kidding.

      • Mike F says:

        Haha!

        God Damn it, Jose! I ALMOST went into a blind rage there 😛

        Ever since vol 5 the series leaves you Begging for more. As if the Viz Media imports weren’t slow enough already, lol, a delay would no doubt ruin my month. However, If this were true, I’d just get Gantz 10 🙂

    I am also seriously considering dropping Green Lantern as well. John’s writing style is wearing a bit thin on me these days. I will say however, that i am enjoying his Flash for now, I can see it getting old fast though. Like, really fast. Get it?

    A nice week for me..

    Brave and the Bold #34- Nice to see the JMS/Saiz will be around for at least another three issues. B&B is my favorite DC book right now, with REBELS a close second.

    Doomwar #4- I love this mini, but for some strange reason I am on the fence this week about buying it. I think it is the $3.99 price tag, correct me if I am wrong, but the book is only 32 pages of art right? I love this series, but I am starting to do the math in my head, figuring out if the trade will be cheaper in the long run.

    Fantastic Four #579- Well after spending several issues building up the Prime Elements storyline and kicking off the war of the four cities Hickman brings it all to an conclusion right? Nope, it looks like he is starting a new Reed-centric storyline.. not to worry, this story actually sounds cooler than the Prime Elements storyline.

    Thunderbolts #144- Hum, Hello? Jeff Parker Bitches! Come on Jeff, show those assholes responsible for that Teen Titans: Villains for Hire travesty how you write a book about a bad guy super group. Ok, OK! Gail Simone too =)

    I was thinking about Secret Avengers also, but I think I will wait and see what the word on the street is about hat one before I pick it up.

  15. comicbookdude says:

    Light week for me 🙂

    Green Lantern#54 (I, like many others, am considering dropping this book)

    Green Lantern Corps#48 (I might drop this too. I’m so used to the Tomasi/Gleason team. But I’m sure that Bedard will be able to do well with the writing chores).

    The Guild#1 (I know I’m late on this but I didn’t watch the show till this weekend so now I want to read the book).

  16. generaldark says:

    ROBW
    green lantern
    GL corps

  17. phil says:

    Power Girl
    B & B
    Secret Avengers

    Filling in the gaps
    DD 51
    Invincible Omnibus 2

    Being a Trade reader… I have so loved Tomasi’s GL Corps work so far. Nice to know most everybody feels the same way.

    As far as the art Jose used for this post– I haven’t read my Power Girl trade (maybe in a couple of weeks) and from what little I’ve seen… I am ALREADY MISSING Amanda Conner on this book. (And I, like, haven’t EVEN READ IT yet!)

    Some of her designs for the Women of the DC Universe Busts have been incredible. On the same sorta note– if you haven’t seen Adam Hughes’ design for the new Batgirl Statue… It is just the coolest. Everybody should check it out.

  19. Insideman says:

    Also, does anybody like DC’s “FREE REALMS” book?

    I passed on it last week but don’t know if I should have. Just looked at a 5 pager Preview and I’m still undecided.

    Decent story? (Art was just on the “OK” side.) Any and all thoughts welcome! Thanks!
